Our Story

After separate successful careers in residential leasing of over $4M in revenue, we decided to come together to form Spaces Invest in August 2018. Our extensive knowledge of the market and relationships we've fostered with various landlords over the years made this a very natural career step.

“We’ve learned so much as top producers and as the point of contact for different projects that this transition came very naturally to us.”
- Julia Stoner

Our Approach

 Our business is not only transactional; we provide a customized experience for each individual client by catering to your specific needs. Spaces Invest begins with advisement and includes underwriting and proformas, leasing plans and guidance to create the best investment strategy. After the transaction, our experienced leasing teams (80 agents) accomplish the leasing plan to full occupancy. Whether it's a two-flat or a 200-unit building, Spaces Invest will help you accomplish your goals.

“We’ve been able to identify and improve gaps in the industry with actionable insights that have proven results.”
- Roman Serra

Meet the Team

By way of Detroit, Michigan, Roman Serra has been with Spaces since April 2014. He is a graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and before working at Spaces he spent time at a real estate brokerage firm. Roman enjoys the personal connections that real estate offers him, and he loves that every neighborhood in Chicago is unique, with an identity all its own. Outside of Spaces, Roman continues to paint and enjoy fine art.

Julia Stoner is a born and raised Chicagoan, growing up on the north side in Rogers Park. She joined the Spaces team in 2013 and after killing it on the leasing side, she began expanding her business into buying and selling. Julia prides herself on her 4 years of perfect attendance at Regina Dominican High School and uses that same commitment to excellence to find her clients the home of their dreams.
